Fear Twd Recap: Rip, [Spoiler]

Fear Twd Recap: Rip, [Spoiler]
Fear the Walking Dead’s cast purge continues. Already, Season 7 had killed off John Sr. and Howard, dispatched one guest character (Ali) after another (Paul) after another (Will), and slapped expiration dates on Alicia and Charlie. And in Sunday’s “Divine Providence,” yet another major if underutilized player met their maker. Who? Read on…

After Alicia & Co. showed up at the Tower’s “phone booth,” for lack of a better term, Strand invited her in for a drink. Since Daniel came in, too, uninvited — and was going on about seeing Ofelia — Victor had him put in time-out while he pleaded his case to Alicia.

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Finally Goes to War (Recap)

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Finally Goes to War (Recap)
[Warning: The following contains Major spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead Season 7, Episode 14, “Divine Providence.”] At last, the long-awaited Tower War is here… but it wasn’t as deadly as you might’ve imagined. Rather than committing to a full-scale battle, most of the episode is dedicated to exploring Alicia Clark (Alycia Debnam-Carey) and Victor Strand’s (Colman Domingo) fractured relationship — you know, with explosions and stuff going on in the background. Strand still very much cares about her, at one point referring to her as the “closest thing [he has] to a daughter” and outright telling her that he loves her. Alicia, on the other hand, is willing to negotiate for peace but not forgive Strand’s many lethal transgressions. In the end, they’re too far apart ideologically to be the friends they once were; Alicia now believes in protecting life at any cost while Strand’s more pragmatic approach saves his family even if the cost is ...

Come join the Butler family! In the Season 4 finale of The Neighborhood, sweet younger son Marty is on bended knee before tough boxer girlfriend Necie. “Marty is super confident — maybe too confident,” reveals Spears with a laugh. “I’m pretty sure he dreamed about proposing to a woman his whole life.” Dave (Max Greenfield) and Gemma (Beth Behrs) had already helped the engineer with his shopping list: “a ring fit for royalty,” Spears says, “as long as it’s in his budget.” Event planner Chika (guest Gina Yashere) takes the next hurdle: a party honoring “the customs and traditions of Necie’s [Nigerian] family, every single one.” The Neighborhood, Season Finale, Monday, May 23, 8/7c, CBS

Eminem Makes a Cameo in Pete Davidson’s Final ‘SNL’ Rap Parody ‘Forgot About Lorne’
After eight seasons of “Saturday Night Live,” Pete Davidson got his commemorative farewell from Eminem, who made a surprise cameo in a parody of his and Dr. Dre’s 1999 hit “Forgot About Dre.”

For the season 47 finale of “Saturday Night Live” on May 21, Eminem made an appearance as part of a cut-for-time musical sketch in tribute to “SNL” producer Lorne Michaels.

In the skit, Davidson raps about the legendary producer’s accomplishments, crediting him for promoting the careers of prominent comedians such as John Belushi, David Spade, Tina Fey and Will Ferrell.

NCIS: Hawai'i's Vanessa Lachey Teases Explosive Season 1 Finale ('It Goes Down'), What's Ahead for Jane/Joe
This Monday night at 10/9c, as CBS’ NCIS: Hawai’i concludes its two-part freshman finale, “It goes down,” series lead Vanessa Lachey promises.

In Part 1 of the season ender, a Marine corporal appeared to be randomly killed after he tried to intervene in a couple’s public argument. But as Special Agent Jane Tennant (played by Lachey) and her team would come to learn from a visiting Captain Milius (Enver Gjokaj), the ill-fated corporal in fact had been targeted after he got wind of a top-secret prisoner exchange between Eastern Europe and the U.S. government — a swap that someone wanted to derail.

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: The Best and Worst of Natasha Lyonne’s Hosting Debut

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: The Best and Worst of Natasha Lyonne’s Hosting Debut
Saturday Night Live’s” 47th season was an interesting experiment, with the majority of hosts being first-timers. This choice led to a much-needed freshness for the sketch comedy institution, and it all wrapped up with “Russian Doll” creator and star Natasha Lyonne in that first-timer hot seat.

Host: Natasha Lyonne

Now, despite Lyonne’s first-timer status as an “SNL” host, as she made clear in her opening monologue, the people at “SNL” were already her chosen family. Not only had she gone to “SNL” all the time as a New York teen, but she’d also had a long romantic relationship with Fred Armisen — which just ended last year — and was friends with people like him, Maya Rudolph, and Amy Poehler (who she’d co-created “Russian Doll” with).

And also despite Lyonne being a capital-a “Actress,” it was an interesting choice that — after Armisen and Rudolph gave their Lyonne impressions,

Has Intelligence just lost one of its own? Heading into the Chicago P.D. finale (airing May 25), things aren’t looking good for Detective Hailey Upton (Tracy Spiridakos), who was left unconscious after she and Detective Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) were close to an explosion during the team’s moves against Javier Escano (José Zúñiga). After joking about “saying goodbye to” and “really missing” Spiridakos, Patrick John Flueger (who plays Officer Adam Ruzek) and Laroyce Hawkins (who plays Officer Kevin Atwater) assure TV Insider that Upton is fine. “Historically we’ve seen this unit take so much abuse whether it’s explosions, nine millimeter bullets to the gut, car crashes and accidents,” Hawkins says. “And I’m not sure if our audience has figured this out yet, but we’re Intelligence. One of us is worth at least six regular cops — ” “Or nine, I’m gonna up you three,

SNL: [Spoiler] Crashes Unaired Rap Video Tribute to Lorne Michaels
Apparently, as he was on his way out door at Saturday Night Live this week, Pete Davidson took notice that the sketch comedy series’ longtime boss man, Lorne Michaels, was in a bit of a funk.

Luckily — as chronicled in an unaired, pretaped segment (seen below) — guest host Natasha Lyonne was rummaging through Michaels’ trash when she found the script for a music video the EP wrote and had hoped to shoot with Davidson before the musically inclined funny man wrapped his eight-season run.

Greg Berlanti Reflects on Major Legacy, Uplifting Diverse Storytellers and Stories He Fought to Get on the Air
It’s nearly impossible to turn on the TV and not see at least one of Greg Berlanti’s shows airing. In fact, over the past few years, Berlanti Productions has had as many as 20 shows on the air at one time — a record-breaking number for a producer and creator. So, it’s no wonder he’s receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on May 23. Still, he never imagined this type of success.

After growing up in rural New York, he attended Northwestern University and thought about a career in theater, but wasn’t sure what he wanted to do.

‘The Orville: New Horizons’ EP Promises ‘Liberated’ Storytelling in Season 3
If you’ve been on board with Seth MacFarlane’s witty homage to Star Trek on Fox, strap in for this ramped-up edition of The Orville: New Horizons. “Being on a streaming platform liberated our storytelling — narratively, emotionally, cinematically,” says exec producer Brannon Braga. (Credit: Hulu) That’ll be clear from the exciting opening, a redo of last season’s “climactic battle” shown from a different point of view “with more ambitious visual effects.” True to the expanded title, expect new worlds aplenty and what Braga calls “a terrifying alien race. You’ll be checking under your bed!” Best of all, Orville, with MacFarlane’s captain leading a crew in the 25th century, “is the same satisfying blend of action, drama, and comedy.” The Orville: New Horizons, Season 3 Premiere, Thursday, June 2, Hulu

How ‘SNL’ Said Goodbye to Kate McKinnon, Pete Davidson, Aidy Bryant, and Kyle Mooney

How ‘SNL’ Said Goodbye to Kate McKinnon, Pete Davidson, Aidy Bryant, and Kyle Mooney
Survive, from New York: “Saturday Night Live” will continue on without four prominent departing cast members, but most of them got a chance to offer up a few final laughs before the show completed its 47th season.

Word that Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, Kyle Mooney and Pete Davidson planned to leave the venerable late-night series after Saturday’s broadcast leaked out late in the week. That made appearances by the actors all the more emotional during NBC’s broadcast of SNL’s season finale. McKinnon made one more run as Ms. Rafferty, the down-and-out woman who is abducted (and probed) by aliens,

SNL's Aidy Bryant Gets Kissed Goodbye in Weekend Update Segment — Watch
Reports of Aidy Bryant leaving Saturday Night Live were confirmed during a segment on Weekend Update during the Season 47 finale, as her and Bowen Yang’s popular “Trend Forecasters” added a touch of melancholy to their wildly over-the-top vibe.

The sketch involves Bryant and Yang breathlessly telling the audience what’s “in” (“Grapes with seeds!” “Tying cherry stems with tongue to impress for sex!” “Watermelon! Sugar! Song!”) and “out” (“Navel orange!”). It’s a bit that’s mostly reliant on the performers willingness to commit to a level of self-importance that would make foreign dignitaries and teenagers swoon.

Kate McKinnon signaled the end of her 10-season Saturday Night Live run with a final — and ultimately emotional — take on her oft-abducted Mrs. Rafferty character, in this weekend’s cold open.

Appearing alongside fellow three-time alien abductees played by Cecily Strong and guest host Natasha Lyonne, McKinnon’s cigarette-dragging alter ego as usual offered up a verrrry different version of events than the others, having not been gently lifted aboard the UFO by a warm beam of light by instead a giant claw machine. And again, as usual, as the aliens poked and prodded her, there were multiple rhyming references

In a sign that perhaps the departing “Saturday Night Live” stars are returning to their greatest hits as they head out the door, this week’s cold open featured a wild sendoff for at least two of them. For Kate McKinnon, that meant returning to playing her fan favorite alien abductee Ms. Rafferty, who once again shared a wildly inappropriate experience with Nsa officers, played by Aidy Bryant and Mikey Day.

After showcasing her experience, McKinnon as Ms. Rafferty headed off into space, after one last goodbye. This clearly doubled as a McKinnon goodbye as well. “I kind of felt
